the festival is not over yet, but i think i'm done. its been a busy week. last weekend, we went to the grand canyon of pennsylvania, not to be confused with the grand canyon of arizona. no one would, actually. but it was pretty and i got to do a 30 mile bike ride along pike creek (the understudy for the role of the colorado river). after that the week has been a blur of arabic, gay movies, a game of settlers of catan and work-related business. this morning i wasted a bunch of time on friendster trying to make sure i had more friends than the person who invited me. of course, that just means that this weekend will be even more busy, trying to catch up on all the things i neglected all week.
